I think I mentioned (or else I just thought about it a lot) that the sun doesn't rise here until VERY late--8:30 a.m. is when it truly could be considered light out. It makes a lot of sense, but I hadn't thought about it before. In the summer, sunsets are late late late. 10:00 p.m., if you can believe it. Westernmost part of the Eastern timezone, combined with being pretty far north will do that.

This is on my mind because I've been sleeping the sleep of the dead; I'm in bed by 7,8,9 and never awake before 7. Today the light woke me up, and I know I got up in the night to pee at 8:56 p.m.
